Mike Evans No. 93

June 6th, 2015

Yes, NFL players, by way of NFL Network, think Bucs second-year wide receiver Mike Evans is great. That says a lot coming from fellow NFLers, especially for a rookie like Evans was.

However, there may be a more august authority than NFL players.

And that would be the NFL Top 100 typed out by none other than prickly Pete Prisco of CBS Sports. He too thinks Evans is elite. Evans made Prisco’s list.

93. Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: He averaged 15.5 per catch as a rookie with 12 touchdown catches. Now that he has Jameis Winston, look for those numbers to go up.

Ironically, Evans comes in at the same number that Bucs stud defensive tackle Gerald McCoy wears on his uniform.

This should be an interesting year for Evans. “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, should be better than his predecessor, turnover-prone Josh McCown. However, Jameis, good as he is, is still a rookie.

One would think Evans would be better this year. One would think Evans could take advantage of a better quarterback. But, again, will that rookie thrive?

Also, don’t discount the fact defensive coordinators had all offseason to figure out how to better defend Evans.

    If Doug Martin can recapture rookie glory and Winston is the real deal, we could have a big 3 like Dallas in the 90’s! They had a Great O-Line though. I can dream, can’t I?!!!!!!!!!

  2. Eric Says:

    Great draft pick Lovie.

    And another one this year.

  3. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Evans should have another great year….and if he does and Koetter is successful, it will probably mean we get some production out of, Sims & the 3rd WR…..that coupled with Vjax & a running game should point to a far better offense.

    I recall Dante Culpepper entering the league to Randy Moss and Chris Carter. He faired just fine,just throw it up baby. Jamies will do the same. This notion he has to struggle because he’ll be in year one please. Spare me.

  5. BuccaneEric Says:

    Eric, I don’t want to jinx anything , but I think this draft could be a great one. If all goes well we could have two starting OL, 3rd WR, starting LB, Return specialist and FB! Did I forget anyone!!?

  6. BuccaneEric Says:

    Oh yea! Some guy named Jameis!

  7. Buccfan37 Says:

    Revis at #8, still overrated, imo. This guy flits from team to team, I guess nobody can afford him on a yearly skyrocketing salary. The Bucs helped pay for his rehab, so off he goes to the 3 team hated AFC East, besides the Bills. Mike Evans will keep on keep on keeping on being a big thorn in opposing teams pass D, as long as he stays healthy.

  8. Buc-A-New Says:

    Those Defensive coordinators can study all they like. The only way to stop a 6’5″ beast with ups like him is to not allow Jameis to throw to him.

  9. 98Bucsfan Says:

    I’m beyond excited for this year!!! Go bucs!!!! Go Jameis!!!

  10. BuccaneEric Says:

    Buc-A-New, in response to your comment about my post last night, I’ve actually been coming on JBF for a while now. I’ve only started posting comments for the last few months. I was reading the 87 and Erik Clean posts and got inspired! Lol! If that makes me “new”, then I guess I’m new. What’s wrong with being “new”?

  11. OneBuc55 Says:

    Calvin Johnson = Megatron…Mike Evans = Octimus Prime

    Evans was really raw coming in and should be hell for DB’s for a long time; honestly, he exceeded my expectations last season, despite horrid O-line play/QB play/Play-calling…In the case of Jameis Winston, Imo he has some really good skill players on offense to work with…Once this O-line is solidified and our offense really gets rolling under Koetter/Winston I expect Tampa’s offense to become a Juggernaut…

  12. Buc-A-New Says:

    Nothing at all about being new my friend. I was referring to the fact that you thought you were the only one drunk posting here when in fact I think it is done often here.

  13. Buc-A-New Says:

    Nothing wrong I meant.

  14. BuccaneEric Says:

    Buc-A-New, no problem baby!!! I never noticed anyone else drunk posting! I’ve probably lost all credibility with those who have read my drunk posts. I never noticed your name before. Probably from being drunk!!! Lol I like how you greet everyone when you come on here. Shows class. I thought it was strange at first but I give you mad props! Go all that is Bucs!!!!!

  15. Buc-A-New Says:

    Oh I greeted you when I first noticed you here. You just don’t remember. This is not the name that I have gone by here for years. I had to get a new for reasons best not spoken about in these threads. lol

  16. ed Says:

    Honestly the only way to stop him is grab him and hope the zebras dont call pi which they usually dont for us.

  17. Buc-A-New Says:

    And as far as Erik with Clean athletics goes, if he still hasn’t given 87 a Jersey then he should never come here again because I for one will never let him live it down. I hate welchers!

  18. BuccaneEric Says:

    Buc A New, I feel the same way. The last I saw he was getting with 87 to hook it up. I’ve seen him on here A LOT less now than before the draft.

  19. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Speaking of that, did we all get lucky? Is Barry gone for good. Haven’t seen that name in a while.

  20. Buccfan37 Says:

    I’m thinking of changing my name to Barry. No not that one, the one at the top of the whole public shebang. God bless you fellow Americans.

  21. The original "Kevin" Says:

    While I feel that winston long term is obviously the better qb….I think that Mike glennon gives this team as a third year qb with dirk koetter running the offense the best chance to win…..at least until the bye. Glennon was light years better than mccown when thrown to the lions under arroyo. He has experience and knows what to expect. And then the huge upside is that if glennon has a fantastic year his trade value will sky rocket and that can be a bug advantage for lovie and jason building through the draft. Its the smart move to at least try in my opinion. And if it doesnt work out that way then throw winston out there. Either way I dont think any of us are expecting a super bowl tun this season. Its a smart long term gamble especially considering we have a pretty easy schedule before the bye. Than again everyone wants to see winston vs mariotta week 1.

    But what if they start winston week 1 and we lose…..oh I could see the panic set in over night. If glennon starts and loses…..than switch to winston.

  22. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    It’s better for him to sit, but I hope Jameis starts week 1

    Agree to a certain point, but Cris Carter and Randy Moss are both HOFers. Remember what Randall Cunningham did with them?

  24. what? Says:

    Megatron is 30 years old, and he’s had THREE years better than Evans rookie 15.5 ypc 12 TD campaign.

    If Evans bests both those totals this year, he’ll be on pace to be better than Calvin Johnson, but not quite Megatron.

    No pressure.
